Are you an SME or Scale-up with an innovative product or service with a tech component? Do you have what it takes to become successful in the US?
Then join the Xplore US contest now!

Xplore US 2017 is a contest for innovative SMEs and scale-ups to win a trip to Boston for a 10-day accelerator program at MIT-spinoff kTeams.
In this contest companies present their business plan and strategy to expand to the US. RVO pre-selects the 20 best applications to enter the Finals. If you are selected, you will pitch your US market strategy for an independent Jury on the 28th of September. The Jury will select the top-10 SMEs with the best pitches and plans, who will be awarded with participation in a ten-day accelerator programme by kTeams – an MIT spin-off for international companies – in Boston (USA).
After preparatory sessions in the Netherlands, the ten winning companies will travel to Boston for a ten day programme (Oct30 – Nov10) where the companies immerse themselves in the Boston ecosystem, by:
– Participating in interactive expert sessions on doing business in the US (from advice on how to get funding by successful entrepreneurs to avoiding legal pitfalls);
– A gold standard mentoring approach, in which individual companies are mentored by several coaches with skills and experience in different disciplines and industrial sectors.
– Meeting potential partners, customers and investors;

The Deadline for companies to apply is September 7th 2017, 12PM.
